I was really so thrilled and happy when my Espresso Coffee Cake came out so awesome last week. I was really over the moon. I made it again the day before and it was all gone the next day! I was so excited that I wanted to try out something new with coffee. Since the expresso coffee cake was so good, I thought I would try expresso coffee swiss roll. This is my first attempt in making swiss roll. I made it yesterday and it came out very successful….just fabulous. The cake was very moist and soft and full of coffee flavour. The coffee icing adds further smoothness to every bite. Another very happy day for me! My recipe to share again:
Ingredients A (cake)
1T espresso coffee (use more if you like)
1T hot water
1 & 1/4C self-raising flour (sieved)
Beat the eggs and sugar for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Fold in the flour.
Dissolve the coffee with the hot water. Add it to the flour mixture together with the oil. Mix through gently.
Pour into 2 big, shallow tins and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 12 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Flip over onto a clean piece of baking paper and immediately roll it up with the help of the paper. Leave it to cool. While waiting, you can make the coffee cream to fill the swiss roll.
Ingredients B (espresso cream)
300 ml double cream
2T icing sugar
1/2T espresso coffee (use more if you like)
1T hot water
Mix the espresso coffee and the hot water. Then add to the double cream and sugar. Use a beater and beat until it is thick.
Unroll the swiss rolls and spread a layer of the coffee cream on it. Roll up again with the help of the baking paper, leaving the seam side down.
Slice and serve with more ceam if you like and some strawberry.
Baking cake is really exciting and interesting. I’ll definitely keep learning how to make more cakes and I’ll keep smiling. There’s so much to be thankful and so much to be happy for.
